The story was not what I had expected so I was a little disappointed. If does however give quite an accounting of the last days before the fall of Germany. It is collection of facts and accounts made into a long story. You do walk away with a much better idea of war and price paid by everyone.
Interesting to hear the pastor's perspective. In one of his pastoral books he mentioned hearing people come to thinking they had committed the most horrible of acts, when in reality we are not very imaginative and there are only about a dozen acts that pastors hear over and over.
No, I was hoping the book would include more of his personal life and challenges. This book stays focused on his career.
Eugene Peterson is a favorite of mine. Anything he writes will have intention and incite.
Sweet, Happy, Ending
Dearie, because they both carved out lives for themselves. Especially at a time when most women faded into darkness after their marriages. Both of these women went on to find fulfilling lives. I am very impressed by people who cultivate love and purpose in their lives.
I think she did a fine job and enjoyed listening to her. It does make a difference to have a voice that resonates with the listener and the subject.
A Life Lived Well.
She reminds me very much of my aunt. Both were unusually tall for their time and both forged their own successful paths through a man's world. I think "My Life in France" is much more personal and enjoyable but this filled in a lot of spaces.
I enjoy and relate to her joie de vivre. Sometimes we just plod into life head on without a lot of reasoning. Julia's positive outlook on life is very enviable.
Not so much a scene as how she fashioned a new life for herself, especially when Paul started to "slip off the raft". I can only hope to be as involved and active into my 90's.
If you want to know her life story this is the book but if you want to know her read "My Life in France".
George Washington would be a man I would look up to. He was honest and you could trust him. That was reassuring as some others like Jefferson were such a disappointment. I started this book on a search to see who the political powers that have shaped us really were. George passed and I can see how he became such an Icon in our history.
Just a few short stories and thats it. Too expensive for what you get.
